Contemporary Art comes to Christ Church

NEW ARTWORKS GIFTED TO CHRIST CHURCH
[12/13/21]
Two contemporary artworks, PALE MALE and NAIL THIS by artist Roz Dimon have been gifted to Christ Episcopal Church by Lyn and E.T. WIlliams, prominent art collectors who are members and long-time supporters of Christ Episcopal Church. The artworks are given in memory of E.T.'s sister, JoAnne Williams Carter, also a revered member of the church and community. After they purchased the art from the artist, Dimon kept the gift going and gave half the proceeds back to the church as a donation. READ MORE in the front page of The Sag Harbor Express.

The ART and the ARTIST
Permanently installed on either side of the large Tiffany glass window located in the back of the sanctuary, they have been described as "contemporary icons" and, due to their backlit light, represent a new form of stained-glass window that invites all to immerse into their digitally-created, multi-layered stories.

One of the artworks, PALE MALE, has an edition in the permanent collection of the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City. It is also being published in an essay about ART & 9/11 written by art historian, Gail Levin, as part of a larger book coming out in Japan in March 2022.

Dimon created Pale Male out of the detritus of 9/11, after having worked at The World Trade Center Complex for over ten years as a creative media director for such corporate giants as The Wall Street Journal Online, and Deloitte. Pale Male is about "finding home when all is lost." 

Viewers may recognize Dimon’s work from having seen her art on permanent view nearby at The Children’s Museum, East End and at The Havens House Museum at The Shelter Island Historical Society.  27East Newspapers recently featured her work for their coverage of The 20th Anniversary of 9/11.
